This funky salt works well in rubs and as a seasoning. You get the heat of the jalapeño chilli plus a smoky flavour, because chipotles are smoked jalapeño chillies!

This salt is great on steaks, fish or pork, or for seasoning your classic adobo marinade for Mexican suckling pig tortillas.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 chipotle chillies
1 cup coarse rock salt

Method

  1. Toast the chipotle chillies in a hot frying pan for 1–2 minutes. Remove the stems and seeds, then soak the chillies in 250 ml boiling water for 10 minutes.
  2. Drain, then place the chillies in a large mortar, along with ½ cup of the salt, and grind to a rough paste. Add the remaining salt and grind a little more.
  3. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Spread the salt evenly over the baking paper and place in a 100°C oven for around 1 hour, until completely dry.
